Advocate Psychotherapy Services can also provide a training site for people looking to complete their graduate degrees and / or licensure process in Wisconsin. “Interns” in the last year of their Masters program need Internships that encompass at least 600 hours in order to graduate. Post-gradate “Residents” need three thousand hours and at least two years of counseling experience to achieve independent licensure status.
Steven L. Johnson is an Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) who can aid men and women that are pursuing their hours toward completing their Masters Degrees or becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, or a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. The Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services’ Examining Board for each of these licenses has put Steve Johnson on the list of approved supervisors for these professions.
The training experience for Interns (unpaid) and opportunity for gaining paid hours for Residents comes primarily from the agency’s school based offices, but all staff share office space at the main office as well. Opportunities for training slots change from time to time depending upon clinic needs, but currently there is space and opportunity for a limited number of applicants to pursue gaining experience at APS.
